Our objective is to form a network of caring individuals and their therapy animals for the purpose of visiting schools, libraries, nursing homes, hospitals, and other institutions where our presence may offer comfort and compassion. We can offer information regarding the process of getting your pet officially certified as a Therapy Animal for volunteer work, and we maintain an updated list of volunteer requests in the local community. Club members are also invited to attend animal-assisted therapy events, conferences, and fundraisers throughout the Bay Area. You do not have to own a pet to be in this club.
